Dual boot Win7/OSX using Chameleon


3 posts in this topic

So, I've successfully got both OSX and Windows 7 running on my pc.

The thing is that I haven't managed to setup Chameleon yet, so the only way for me to boot into any of the OS's is using the OSX install usb I made. (That has Chameleon installed).


How do I go about setting up Chameleon without having to repartition the disk? I've tried doing it manually but I always end up getting:

"boot0: done"

"boot0: error"


Since Win7 was installed first the disk probably has a MBR setup, instead of a GUID partition table, which may be causing my problems?


The disk layout is as following (from diskutil list, there is only one disk):


0: FDisk_partition_scheme------------------------*500.1 GB----disk0

1: 0x1C----------------------------------------------------15.7 GB------disk0s1 (Restore partition that came with the pc)

2: Windows_NTFS----------OS-------------------- 125.0 GB--- disk0s2

3: Windows_NTFS----------Data-------------------322.1 GB----disk0s3

4: Apple_HFS-------------- Mac OSX 10.6.3----37.2 GB------disk0s5

make sure that the windows 7 disk in plugged in first, then the OSX disk


boot into windows 7 and install EasyBCD 2


click the and and entry option and select the Mac OS tab, then add an entry for OSX EFI and press save
